From the creative mind of João Miranda comes the Haunted Box, a very clever illusion with a storyline that is guaranteed to amaze your audience.
Do you believe in ghosts? You will after witnessing this…
The magician displays a simple wooden box, purchased several years ago from an antique shop. The magician explains that when he arrived home and opened the box, he noticed a faded picture of Harry Houdini, “The King of Cards.” This picture wasn’t in the box when he first purchased it. From time to time, the magician noticed the box would produce strange noises at night, a “slamming” sound, as if the spirit of Harry Houdini haunted it.
The magician demonstrates these strange occurrences under the most stringent of test conditions:
He opens the lid and removes a deck of cards and a standard Sharpie Pen (or pen of your choice).
A spectator is invited to select ANY card from the deck and sign its face. The card is then placed ANYWHERE in the deck by the spectator. This is a 100% FREE choice.
The spectator then mixes the cards and is asked to deal them, one by one, into the box. SUDDENLY the lid of the box SLAMS SHUT, as if telling the spectator to stop dealing. The magician asks the spectator to turn over the card they are holding in their hand… it is the signed card!
Haunted Box comes complete with everything necessary to get started performing this miracle right out of the box. This very special box allows you to concentrate on your presentation as it is 100% self-working. The Haunted Box is perfect for close-up, yet plays big enough for any stage!
